Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM: Appellants Derek Jarvis and Shirley J. Pittman seek to appeal the district court's order entered on April 8, 2009. The order granted various Defendants' motions to stay discovery and motions for a more definite statement, and denied Plaintiffs' motion to order Defendants to file all documents and to refile and rescan documents. This court may exercise jurisdiction only over final orders, 28 U.S.C. 1291 (2006), and certain interlocutory and collateral orders, 28 U.S.C. 1292 (2006); Fed. R. Civ. P. 54(b); Cohen v. Beneficial Indus. Loan Corp., 337 U.S. 541 (1949). neither a final The order Appellants seek to appeal is nor an appealable interlocutory or order collateral order. Accordingly, we grant Appellants' motion to proceed in forma pauperis and dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the court and argument would not aid the decisional process. DISMISSED 2
